Hitchhiker

While wondering in the streets of Kefalonia and seeing across Ithaki, only the following words by the renowned Greek poet Constantinos Cavafy came to my mind: 

Always keep Ithaki in your mind.
Arriving there is your destination.
But don’t hurry the journey at all.
Better if it lasts for years
And you are old when you anchor on the island,
rich with all you have gained along your way,
Not expecting Ithaki to offer you treasures.

Ithaki gave you the beautiful journey.
Without her you wouldn’t have set out.
She has nothing more to give you.
And if you find her poor, Ithaki has not deceived you.

Wise as you have become, with so much experience,
you must have already understood what Ithakes mean.
